Sim City Owners Get Free Game Over Horrid Launch


Sim City suffered a horrid launch thanks to online persistent DRM. The game, even to play it alone, has to be connected online, just like what we saw with Diablo III last year. Launch day came, and the servers crashed and burned, there was pandemonium. You spent $60 on a game that you could not play, since the launch, Maxis has been hard at work correcting the issue. Now they want to offer you a piece offering, a free game through Origin. If you register your copy of Sim City before March 25th, you will have until March 30th to claim your free game. Here are the games below:


Battlefield 3 (Standard)

Mass Effect 3 (Standard)

Dead Space 3 (Standard)

Medal of Honor: Warfighter (Standard)

Need for Speed Most Wanted (Standard)

Sim City 4 Deluxe Edition

Bejeweled 3

Plants vs. Zombies


That isn’t a bad list of games to choose from, but Medal of Honor isn’t worth it; I even got it for free and felt like Danger Close and EA owed me money. It is also a tad ironic that Sim City 4 is one of the titles being given away for the screw up of the new one. Anyway, again you have until March 25th to register your copy and March 30th to claim your free game.

Have your say
